Designer of the Week - Sassypants*Designs

This week get to know Heatherof Sassypants*Designs. She lives in Poplar Grove, Illinois with her husband and three children, Nikko age 15, Grace age 4, Max age 1.

See her current eBay auctions: Sassypants*Designs

JM: When did you get started sewing and creating?

HEATHER: I started sewing when Grace was born. My Mother and Grandmother have been sewing for as long as I can remember, so I think it's in my blood to sew!

JM: When did you start selling your designs on eBay?

HEATHER: I started selling my designs on Ebay last spring. I mainly sell on Ebay, however I do have some very loyal local customers who buy my designs as well.

Before sewing and Ebay, I worked in the technology industry in sales traveling all over the U.S.

JM: Do you remember the first outfit you sold on eBay?

HEATHER: Yes, I remember it.... it sold for about $35 (I was hooked!) A picture.... hmmmm....I think I lost it LOL!

JM: How did come up with your name, Sassypants*Designs?

HEATHER: We've always called Grace Ms. Sassypants because of her "sassy" personality. So, it seemed fitting that I call my business Sassypants.

JM: Do you belong to any boutique group?

HEATHER: I belong to the group 7AVE . I guested with them, and after the launch they invited me to join. They are an amazingly supportive group of very talented ladies!

JM: Do you have a favorite item to create?

HEATHER:I like creating everything from cute to funky... both boys and girls! My true passion is in the design. Pulling different fabrics together.... dreaming about it all night.... then pulling it all together!

JM: If you could learn some new skills, what would they be?

HEATHER: I need to learn some organizational skills!!!! They're important to me because I can never find anything in my sewing room! LOL

JM: If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?

HEATHER: I'm not much of a traveler anymore. I spent most of my twenties traveling every week for work. So, my favorite place to travel is my backyard pool with the kids!

JM: What other things do you enjoy besides sewing?

HEATHER: I have recently developed a passion for photography! I also enjoy interior design! I'm addicted to watching HGTV!

JM: Anything else you would like to add?

HEATHER: I was thrilled to be asked to be Designer of the Week on JM! Thank you, I truly appreciate it!
